Goal Motivation | Coffee Over Books

Good evening everyone! I discussed this a bit in my most recent video, but I would like to motivate you all a bit.

It’s February, nearly mid-February, and I’m sure that we have either given up on some goals from the beginning of the year or are trying to find the motivation to get them done.

2020 Goals (Reading and Life)

Good morning everyone. I hope you had a great weekend and kick off this week right. I felt what better day to share my goals for 2020 than on a Monday

Monday’s are one of my most motivating days. I work Sunday nights into Monday and that’s the start of my work week. I’m determined to make this week a good one and productive. So to start that out, here are my goals for 2020.

I’m not going to go too in depth with why I’m doing them here. This will be my ultimate list where I will link to if anyone wants to see the cohesive list of my goals.

If you want me to go in depth with them, I can do separate posts for my Reading Goals and my lifestyle goals. Let me know if you want that.

Reading GoAls

This may seem like a lot, but I really like to push myself and honestly these are a lot of background challenges.

  1. Read 20 Authors (10 Complete Works, 10 New To Me)
  2. Read 20 Series (Finish 10, Start 10)
  3. Read 50 Books Currently on my TBR
  4. Read more Indie Published Books
  5. Post a Photo Review for Every Book I Read
  6. Romanceopoly
  7. Linz the Bookworm 2020 Reading Challenge
  8. 2020 Pop Sugar Reading Challenge
  9. A to Z Reading Challenge
  10. Read 100 Novels

I also have a kind of TBR Jar but with a twist. TBR Jars never work for me. For the past 2 years I’ve wrapped books in wrapping paper and unwrapped them each month.

Well, instead of being wasteful, I decided to reuse something I have many of: empty subscription boxes. I grabbed 4 Owlcrate boxes and 2 Book of the Month boxes and filled them to the brim with books (One of the BotM boxes is currently bursting at the seams, so to speak). Every other month I will “unbox” one of these boxes and give myself the two months to read them. So in January, I’ll be doing the first and I’ll have between Jan and Feb to read them.

The max amount of books in one of the boxes is 4, the least I think is 2. So it all depends. I’ll probably start with BotM since it’s the beginning of the year. I’m really excited to start this and I hope that it helps me to read some books I wouldn’t have picked up otherwise.

Life goals

  1. Declutter my Home and Life
  2. Be More Active in the Community
  3. Be More Positive (Toward Myself and Others)
  4. Seek Help With Infertility
  5. Start Internship
  6. Graduate
  7. Find a New Job/Get Promoted
  8. Eat Better
  9. Yoga More
  10. Meditate
  11. Study Crystals More
  12. Start Learning ASL and Korean Again
  13. Do Memory Exercises

Like I said, it seems like a lot. I have plans for certain things to tackle these and others I’m not 100% sure where to start.

If you want to join me in doing any of these goals, please let me know! I would love to motivate one another with these things. I plan on making spreads in my BuJo to track how I’m doing with all of them. The reading ones are simple. It’s the life ones I’m not sure where to start with or track.

Thank you all so much for joining me. Please let me know what goals you are going to be working toward in 2020.

Task of the Post

Here’s today’s task. My next blog post will be going up tomorrow. So take today to come up with some 6 month goals. Where do you want to be in 6 months? I will share mine tomorrow, but think about yours. If you want to share with me, go ahead. If not, then don’t feel obligated to. But I want you to at least start thinking about it.
